Arm and Hammer Clean Burst Scent Detergent Caused Allergies

by Lori
(Canada)

Lori shared her experience with the Arm and Hammer Clean Burst scent of this detergent.

Lori says:

I had a reaction to this detergent but didn't realize it for awhile.


I was getting extremely itchy in my neck and chest area and then noticed I had red welts all over.

I have switched back to my old detergent which is Purex but it is scented. I will have to see if I have any more reactions.

I purchased the Arm and Hammer because of the price. It was very economical but now I have to ask myself why.

Taylor says:

Thanks for sharing your experience with this detergent Lori. You're right, that this brand is very inexpensive, but so is Purex. I personally find the one that is cheaper is which one is on sale, especially when combining with coupons.

Who knows why this brand caused an allergic reaction for you, but things just impact people differently sometimes. I'm glad you've found a brand that works well for you, without causing allergic reactions.

Clean Burst Scent Not Irritating To My Daughter's Skin

by Gail
(Waterford, CT)

I have been using this scent for years, in the liquid variety.

The clothes always smell good and they are nice and clean.

One of my kids has very sensitive skin so I have to be careful what I use on laundry.

The free and clear detergents never really seemed to clean all that well and the rest of the family complained that their clothes did not smell good with these detergents.

This scent does not irritate my daughter's skin at all! Clothes are clean and smell great! A perfect world!

Switched To This From Tide After Discovering Allergies

by SR101 Reader

I developed an unfortunate allergy to the Tide detergent I had been using before.

So I tried Tide Free and Gentle which worked pretty well for me, but it was still sort of expensive and it didn't get the smell out as well.

I was given a big jug of the Arm and Hammer scent free version and had the same problem but worse.

FORTUNATELY, I decided to experiment a bit and added a little bit of the this clean scented version to my loads, until I was using it straight without having any adverse reactions.

It's definitely not for everyone, as the other reviews will attest, but if you can afford to experiment a little, this detergent may turn out to be ok for you.

Love My Laundry Detergent!

by Pam
(Newnan, Ga)

I've always used Arm & Hammer products. I love the A&H Clean Burst liquid for regular machines.

I've used this since it hit the market. I'm not allergy prone, per se, but I do have sensitive skin.

I've never had issues with it, nor has my step-daughter who does suffer from detergent allergies.

My clothes smell clean and fresh and stains disappear.

I noticed that my clothes look newer, longer which is a benefit.

I recommend this detergent.

This Scent Caused Rash Over Back And Chest

by SR101 Reader

SR101 Reader says:

I would not recommend this detergent to anyone.

It caused a severe rash on my husband's back and chest, waist - any part of his body that his clothes washed in it and his skin touched.

He bought the detergent because it was on sale, and unfortunately didn't keep the receipt. I'm tempted to take it back anyway and demand the $8.00 he paid for it back.

This rash has lasted for 5 days now, and we have had to wash everything over again to avoid the rash.

This should not even be on the market!

Taylor says:

Sorry to hear that, rashes and hives from laundry detergent allergies are no fun.

It is interesting that some people have had allergies from this particular scent, and others not. I'd love to hear from others what they think of it, not only for allergies, but also for how it cleans their clothes.

Hives
by: Rick

We purchased A&H fresh scent. I didn't notice the fresh scent since I've been dealing with itching and hives since. We used it for maybe two weeks until we figured it out. This stuff is deadly. It will cause you to almost go out of your mind. Itch and scratch,and hives everywhere. Maybe for Christmas,every manager at that company should be given a gallon to try. I have been taking medicine at night to take the itch away. I'm rewashing everything,and to the trash the remainder goes. If your using this with no reaction,your very lucky. For me,I'm done with A&H laundry products.

Awful reaction
by: Mary

I also did the same thing, I bought Arm and Hammer. A day or two later, I broke out from my butt to my toes. In big round marks all over. I ended up down in the Emergency Department. I had my self tore up from scratching. When the doctor saw the marks and redness, she told me, I was having an allergic reaction to something I was using. I mentioned Arm and Harmmer and she said it's probably be that, because they have had a lot of people who come in with the same thing and they use Arm and Hammer too.

Using for years
by: Anonymous

Been using this detergent for years. I love it. Clothes come out clean, smell good, and I even have sensitive skin.

Forced me to doctor
by: Anonymous

I bought clean burst scented arm and hammer and had a horrible allergic reaction. I felt like I had pollen thrown in my face with sneezing sometimes ten times in a row and watery itchy eyes and wheezing so bad I had to see a doc.

rash-like welts all over
by: Sandy

I just purchased Arm and Hammer Clean Burst since it was on sale. After washing my sheets I woke up with rash-like welts all over. I did go to the doctor for treatment. I used other Arm and Hammer detergents before, however for some reason this Clean Burst gave me trouble. Now I'll purchase detergent at the health food store in my area. This reaction was a first for me, and it really scared me. Hope this helps others as previous comments really helped me!

keeps my whites white
by: Kaylie

I started using this for my white clothes only, just like my grandmother has for over 20 years. That being said I only use this on whites and it seems to keep them whiter longer with no yellowing. Also I used nothing else but the detergent.
